General Lamp / January 23, 2019 / Aadhya Kidd.
Now this crystal table lamp with a contemporary crystal-like shade is very unique and modern. It certainly is the complete opposite of the antique lamps we just looked at above! This lamp is has a chandelier style lighting from the 3 glass "lamp shades". It has a slim stem and a round base to give it plenty of support. It is made of acrylic and steel, and the manufacturer says it is easy to assemble.
Generally lamps are used in three ways. They provide light to carry out certain tasks like reading, sewing, and cooking. Usually these type of lamps, which are typically called task lamps, need to be bright. Lamps also provide ambient light to rooms so that people can move and observe objects and other people. Ambient lamps also create a mood for the room. These lamps don't need to be as bright as task lamps. Thirdly lamps can be used to draw attention to, or accent an area or object. These lamps known as accent lamps.
But you will probably end up throwing these lamps away sooner or later. The material is brittle, hollow, fragile and it chips and breaks very easily. You will likely not be giving these lamps to your grand children, not even your children. This poly resin material reminds me of the chalk ware lamps from circa 1950. These lamps are rarely if ever found in one piece. They were cheap back then and they are usually worthless now.
We label our lamps individually so that our customers know a little something about them while browsing so she knew this lamp was exclusive to our store and that only one lamp had ever been made. She brought the lamp to the register and told me how much she loved the design and the fact that it was truly unique. I explained to her that we designed and made this lamp and that it was not available anywhere else.
